Alabama RB Derrick Henry runs for 153 yards in the first quarter vs. Texas A&M
COLLEGE STATION, Texas — Derrick Henry is putting on a show at Kyle Field.
Alabama’s junior running back ripped off 153 yards — including a 55-yard touchdown — on nine carries as the Crimson Tide built an early 14-3 first-quarter lead over the Aggies.
Henry got hot early with five carries for 45 yards, and then began poking larger holes.

The Heisman Trophy hopeful pulled a step-back juke and stretched a run to the left sideline for 15 yards. Two plays later, he raced through a wide-open hole, changed directions past the safety, and coasted to pay dirt.
He now has at least one rushing touchdown in 12 straight games, extending the school record he set last week.
